Weatherford, TX asked in Tax Law for Colorado

Q: Sold house in CO. live in Tx. Signed saying I was a resident, agent said thats fine. Did not pay 2% tax. Can I pay now.

Called the title company back 3 days later when I realized I needed to pay the 2% tax. They had already sent in the paper work in. They said get with your tax adviser. Did not want to get in trouble for signing saying I live there & not paying 2% right now.
